It was interesting to watch the celebrations in Gaza over the open ceasefire agreed to with Israel. Hamas and the green banners were out in force in the streets of Gaza City cheering and shooting off weapons into the air — hardly sounds like they feel defeated.
Now, I just have to ask: how do you have a ceasefire with a terrorist organization whose declared raison d’être is your extermination? I mean let’s get serious, how long do any of you believe this will hold?
Let me give you an idea — as long as it takes for Hamas to be rearmed, refitted, and reassess their current situation to develop a new plan of action. The fact that we watched aid trucks flowing into Gaza from Israel along with aid from the United States — don’t forget John Kerry pledged $47 million to Hamas — only means we are supplying the next round of attacks.
If I were Hamas, I’d be celebrating because once again it demonstrates that the West fears destroying Islamic terrorism and jihadism. We just continue to allow the cancer to fester and grow.
And for those who believe the “Palestinians” seek peace, desire to be a part of the global community and respect the rule of law, I’ve got a little message for you. Now, don’t listen to me, listen to the “good” Palestinians — the Palestinian Authority or Fatah (actually they are the original Palestinian terrorists).
As reported by Palestinian Media Watch, “Member of Fatah Central Committee Abbas Zaki, states, “I’m against signing the Rome Statute (i.e., joining the International Criminal Court) as long as our country is occupied. If tomorrow you shoot, they’ll say you signed an agreement. This is not meant for people who want to liberate their country… I think the [Palestinian] people’s weapon is pure – they don’t want to kill. By the way, there are no innocent Israelis.”
You know what really amazes me? These guys don’t care, they know they’re being monitored and just don’t care what you think. You know why? Because no matter how many times they express their desires and goals, they realize we will apologize away their abhorrent behavior. Indeed, cultural jihadist apologists will refer to me as a “fear monger” just for showing you their own words. Hey, what’s up with that?
I’ll tell what’s up with that: fear, cowardice, and the inability to accept a hard truth that there are folks who hate you for your mere existence and are committed to your demise — ain’t hard to comprehend. The reality of your enemy must become your own, as eventually it will.
Hamas celebrates. Fatah leadership says there are no innocent Israelis.
And so it goes — our tolerance reflects our weakness, which enables their strength.
